Monday 24th October 2016 – DWP (Handsworth Benefit Processing) Phone Me, Decision Maker Will Contact Complex Advice Team, re: Income Support (3rd Claim) “Party to Proceedings”

“Mr K” calls me from DWP’s Income Support New Claims (Handsworth Benefit Processing). He said they attempted 3 x calls to me this morning, but he’s just tried something else to get through.

Because I’m claiming Income Support as I’m a “Party to Proceedings”, the Decision Maker will be contacting the Complex Advice Team to get further advice on the condition of entitlement. As soon as the Decision Maker obtains advice from the Complex Advice Team, the Decision Maker will make a Decision. “Mr K” said it can be a few days turnaround, & it might take until the end of this week for a Decision to be made.

“Mr K” said nobody on his team was aware that being a Party to Proceedings could entitle someone to I.S.

I reminded “Mr K” that the DWP should have processed my claim by 21st Oct 2016. It’s been with the Decision Maker (Mrs K) for one and a half weeks already, why is she only seeking further advice from the Complex Advice Team now?

About slowlyrotting

I am constantly having to endure the stresses of dealing with several different benefits issues. I've got Appeals and Tribunals coming out of my ears. I've lost count of the formal complaints I've had to make. I've kept paper records of most of my interactions with the DWP, HMRC etc for years, so I've literally got several hundred posts (maybe thousands) to compose for this website. I can't post them to here as quick or as often as I'd like to, due to health reasons, and being totally overwhelmed. I intend to go back years, eventually. But at this rate, I don't think I'll ever get to post everything I want to. You can see from what I've put up so far that I've got a lot of crap to deal with. I'm probably not even 1% or 2% done. I am slowly rotting....................
